WESTLAKE, Ohio -- March 21, 2013

TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters) operator of the TA® and Petro
Stopping Centers® travel center brands, has released an update to its
TruckSmart® Mobile App. The update, 2.4.4, provides professional drivers with
new and more user-friendly features.

TruckSmart’s update includes the ability for drivers to create and save their
‘favorite’ TA and Petro locations for quick and easy viewing. Additionally,
guests can see the local Hometown Favorites prepared by full-service Petro
Iron Skillet® and TA restaurants on each location’s amenities page. And,
amenities icons can now be pressed and held for more detailed descriptions.
Drivers can also call the Reserve-It™ Parking Reservation number with the
touch of a button.

“We receive a lot of calls from drivers who love using the app,” said Tom
O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters. “The new version implements many
of their suggestions and adds other features, too,” he added.

All of the features that have made TruckSmart an industry-leading app have
remained, including the Instant Shower feature. With the app, UltraONE® Driver
Rewards Program members can reserve a shower through the app, pay for it with
credits or Points, be placed in the queue, and receive an email when the
shower is ready … all without stepping foot in the travel center.

UltraONE account information is still readily available on the Balances
screen, which now shows YOUR Rewards Program ‘visits,’ and the number of
available parking spaces and showers at each site are always available.
One-touch calling to RoadSquad Connect™ anywhere, anytime, emergency roadside
service remains at the user’s fingertips.

More than 180,000 users have downloaded the free TruckSmart app to their
iPhone or Android smartphone. Drivers without a smartphone on these platforms
can access the app through any HTML5 browser at
